Thomas J. McDonnell, Pastor of St. Augustine's Parish in South Boston. 

Provost O'Brien, as part of his report, announced the recent resignations of Dean 
James John, Dean of the College of Engineering, who will become President of the General 
Motors Institute in Hint, Michigan and Vice Chancellor Dennis Madson who will be going to 
Lewis and Clark University in Oregon. It was then moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To express its gratitude to Vice Chancellor Madson for 

his outstanding contributions to Student Affairs on 
the Amherst campus and wishes him well in his new 
position. 

Provost O'Brien then read a statement about conditions on the Amherst campus. (A 
copy of the Provost's statement reaffirming the campus mission is attached to the minutes). 



Chancellor Lazare then spoke about the budget situation and its affect on the 
campus. He also spoke on how the war in the Persian Gulf was affecting the campus. Nine 
people from the Medical Center have been called to active military duty including five 
physicians, three of whom are surgeons, (one is the Chair of Anesthesiology, and one is the 
Chair of Obstetrics and Gynecology). The other four are a respiratory therapist, a

Trustee O'Leary gave the report of the Committee on Budget and Financial Affairs. 
He first reported on the FY1991 Operating Budg et, which he said gives an accurate 
reflection of the campus budgets. He added that the Committee has asked for additional 
information concerning how the campuses intend to implement forthcoming reductions. He 
noted that the state appropriations have decreased for the second year in a row and the 
total decrease from FY90-91 was $50 million or 19% of the overall budget. It was moved,

and 

VOTED : To amend the Allied Health Trust Fund vote as follows:

Health Trust Fund, which shall have as its purpose the providing 
of services in non-physician health science programs in collaboration

as outlined in Doc. T81-049. 

The costs of the operation and maintenance of this self-supporting 
program shall be recovered from fees charged to users of the program 
and any other appropriate non-state funding sources; 

and inserting in place thereof the following: 

To establish the University of Massachusetts/Worcester Allied 
Health Trust Fund, which shall have as its purpose the providing of 
services in non-physician health science programs in collaboration 
with other institutions of higher learning within the Commonwealth 
and the offering of non-degree certificate programs in the Allied

program shall be recovered from fees charged to collaborative

In concluding his report, Trustee O'Leary said the Committee recommends a vote 
supporting the Chancellor at the Boston campus in the past practice of not charging parking 
fees on weekends, which has been part of an effort to encourage community use of the 
facilities. It was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To support the Chancellor in the Boston campus' past 

practice of not charging for parking on weekends which 
assists in maintaining relationships with the Community. 

Chair Oakes then gave the report of the Executive Committee which considered the 
following items. It was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To approve the minutes of the October 25 and November 28, 

1990 Hospital Management Board meetings including the 
June, 1990 audited financial statements and the September 
and October, 1990 unaudited financial statements and the 
appointments and reappointments to the Medical Center. 
(Doc. T91-011) 

And, 

VOTED : To approve a revision to the Board of Trustees By-Laws 

(Doc. T81-028C, as amended) by replacing Article III, 
Section 5, with the following: 

"The Executive Committee shall be composed of the 
Chair of the Board of Trustees, the Vice Chair of the 
Board of Trustees, . . ." 

The next item was the Le gal Services Center /Litigation Authority at UM/Amherst. 
The Chair explained that the proposed motion recommended by the Executive Committee 
represents a compromise. It was the feeling of the Executive Committee that it did not want 
university employees involved in litigation because of the negative public relations 
implications and liability issues. The vote recommended authorizes the Legal Services 
Center employees to retain outside Legal Counsel to represent individual students in 
litigation proceedings regarding landlord/ tenant and consumer protection matters. 

He added that there has been a great deal of effort to come up with a dispute 
resolution process which would resolve disputes at the lowest level and avoid 
court/litigation. 



( 



Trustee McQuilken then made a motion to table this item until the April meeting, 
stating that the students would like to do research on whether the proposed structure would 
work. 

Concerns which the Trustees asked to be addressed include the liability that the 
University might occur, the public relations concern of having employees of the University 
instituting legal proceedings against merchants and/or landlords. Chair Oakes also 
volunteered to solicit attorneys in the Connecticut valley to provide this service to students 
at a reasonable cost. 



It was then moved, seconded and 

The Chair then stated that the next item on the agenda, Cogeneration Plant, 
UM/Amherst would be considered in executive session. 

The Board then considered changes to the Alcoholic Beverages Policy at the Boston 
campus. It was moved, seconded and 



VOTED : 



To amend Doc. T91-005, the proposed Alcoholic Beverages Policy 
for the Boston campus, by: 



(1) 





(2) 




(3) 




(4) 




(5) 




(6) 




(7) 


And further, 





Amending the title to read "Alcoholic Beverages Policy 
University of Massachusetts at Boston"; 

Deleting the Preface; 

Deleting from Section 4(a) the parenthetical reference 
"(Trustee Document, T75-015A)"; 

Striking from Section 5(a) the word "matter" and 
inserting in lieu thereof the word "policy"; 

Striking the period after Section 6(e) and substituting 
thereof a semicolon; and 

Adding after the words "police officers" in Section 7 
the following - ",if any/'; 

Renumbering the amended document as Trustee Document 
T91-005A. 



To rescind Doc. T75-015A and to approve the Alcoholic Beverages 
Policy for the University of Massachusetts at Boston as contained 
in Doc. T91-005A. 

Next on the agenda was adoption of the Scientific Misconduct Policy at the 
Worcester campus. It was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To approve the Scientific Misconduct Policy at the University 

of Massachusetts at Worcester as contained in Doc. T91-008. 

Amendments to the Retrenchment Policy at the Worcester campus were then 
recommended. Trustee Haynes raised concerns about the vagueness of the language and made 
a motion to table this item. The motion was not seconded and the following motion was 
moved, seconded and 



-5- 



VOTED : To amend the Retrenchment Procedures of the University of 

Massachusetts at Worcester contained in Doc. T83-068 by striking 
out the paragraph in Section IV. I. 2. and inserting in place 
thereof the following: 

"Classified and professional employees will be released next from 
affected job classification in accordance with job classification 
seniority. However, where necessary to maintain the effective 
functioning of a department, less senior employees may be retained." 

Further, to renumber the amended document as Doc. T83-068A. 

Trustee Haynes is recorded as opposed. 

The Board then considered a change to the Code of Student Conduct a t the Boston 
campus. It was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To revise the Code of Student Conduct at the University of 

Massachusetts at Boston (Doc. T87-037B) by deleting all 
references to the "Dean of Students" and substituting 
in its place the title of "Associate Vice Chancellor for 
Student Affairs". 

Next on the agenda was a reaffirmation of the Housing Allowance for the President 
and the Chancellors. It was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To reaffirm the housing allowance for the President and the 

Chancellors as previously approved by the Board on June 1, 
1988. (Doc. T87-032B) 

Chair Oakes then explained that the next two items dealt with the establishment 
of a group called A pplied Computer Systems Institute of Massachusetts, Inc. (ACSIOM). 
This corporation, which is not part of the University but has been established by University 
employees to facilitate technology transfer. He added that the State Ethics Commission 
has deemed it to be a state agency, which restricts individuals involved in this corporation 
who are also University employees from receiving compensation from two state agencies. In 
order to clarify this situation the Board was asked to adopt the following. It was moved, 
seconded and 

VOTED : To append the following paragraphs to the contracts of faculty 

members of the University upon the approval of the President: 
The University of Massachusetts recognizes the responsibility 
of its multi-faceted public mission to assist in moving the results of 
research to industry as rapidly and effectively as possible. To 
encourage this outcome while protecting the integrity of the 
employee's commitment to the University, the following terms of 
employment, approved by the Board of Trustees, shall be 
incorporated in those employment contracts of University employees 
which are approved by the President: 

Subject to Massachusetts General Laws Chapter 268A, Section 7, as 
amended, and in accord with the interpretation of the State Ethics 
Commission that "multiple contract restrictions of G.L. c. 268A do not 
apply when an employee's additional services and compensation are 
an expansion of the employee's primary employment contract" (EC- 
COI-88-10, June 14, 1988), the employee under this appointment may 
engage in technology development and transfer activities as an 



And, 



employee of the University or while working for and on behalf of a 
University affiliate. 

Such employee may receive compensation and benefits from the 
development, commercialization, marketing, distribution, licensing 
and support of the work product provided: 

The employee and his/her department head (or other designated 
unit) make prior written disclosure of the technology transfer project 
to the Vice Chancellor for Research, or other University officer 
designated by the Chancellor of the Boston or Worcester campus 
as appropriate. 

The employee and his/her department head (or other designated 
unit) make written disclosure of and receive written approval 
for the nature and extent of the employee's planned participation 
in the activity. Such disclosure will be made to and such approval 
must be given by the respective designated University officer. 

Such participation shall not interfere with the employee's 
primary obligation to the University during the terms of his 
or her contract of employment. Should such an event occur, 
the University reserves the right to revoke approval of the 
employee's participation in the activity. 

Further, to direct that the Board of Trustees approve the 
University's relationship with any University affiliate 
organization, and that the President on behalf of the University 
enter into a generic contract with a University affiliate organization, 
which contract shall include provisions for compensation to the 
University for inventions, discoveries, research, or other work product 
developed under the terms of a sponsored agreement entered into by 
the University or involving University funds, facilities (excluding 
libraries), equipment, materials or time. (Doc. T91-018) 

Further, subject to the Union agreement, to delegate to the President 
the authority to extend this policy to other employees. 



VOTED : To approve the University's relationship with the Applied 

Computer Systems Institute of Massachusetts, Inc. (ACSIOM). 

Prior to going into Executive Session, the Board heard from Professor Arthur Kinney 
from the Amherst campus. Professor Kinney distributed to the Board a copy of a statement 
to Chancellor Duffey from the Faculty Senate which urged the President/Chancellor to be a 
more aggressive spokesperson for the needs of public higher education and urged the Trustees 
to represent the University interests more visibly in the media and on Beacon Hill. 

Chair Oakes suggested that the Faculty Senate shares the responsibility with the 
Board and administration to be advocates for public higher education in this time of extreme 
budgetary constraint and shares the responsibility to come up with constructive ways to deal 
with the reality of what the University is facing. He also indicated that he would be 
happy to meet with the faculty to have this discussion . 

Trustee Haynes then raised a question about whether the Board of Trustees has any 
control over what happens with capital expenditures and awards by the University 



-7- 



Building Authority. The Chair suggested it would be appropriate to ask Trustees who serve 
on the Building Authority to review such awards. 

Chair Oakes then called for a motion to go into Executive Session to discuss 
Collective Bargaining. The time was 10:50 a.m. and it was moved, seconded and 

VOTED; To enter Executive Session. 

Chair Oakes voted for the motion as did Trustees Baker, Bowman, Canina, Carlin, 
Foley, Haynes, Mahoney McQuilken, O'Leary, Walsh and Zervas.

February 5, 1991 
PROVOST REAFFIRMS CAMPUS MISSION 
To the Trustees, February 6, 1991 



A point of crisis has been reached on the Amherst 
campus. It is perhaps surprising that, in three years of 
ferocious budget reductions, we have had no abnormal loss of 
star faculty or junior faculty, our two most mobile groups. 
But this year has been particularly severe; we have had to 
extract 16. B million dollars from our budget. This 
extraction, following two years of deep cuts, has involved 
severe cuts in college support budgets, a continuing partial 
freeze on support personnel, elimination of all faculty 
recruitment, and the process of reducing or eliminating 14 
academic programs, along with drastic reduction in 
administrative people and programs. 

A consequence is that faculty are questioning our 
commitment to academic quality; numerous top faculty are 
actively seeking positions elsewhere? and junior faculty are 
wondering out loud if this is the place to build their 
careers. Unless we make our commitment clear, and follow it 
with actions, we could see an unravelling of a system that 
has been building in excellence for more than a decade. 

In recent reductions we have been particularly diligent 



* ^6 



in our attention to teaching concerns. Although a variety 
of other actions have promoted the research enterprise, such 
as new buildings or space for research in engineering and 
polymer science and computer science, there is a need to 
reaffirm the importance of our scholarship and the key 
contribution it makes to our teaching. 

Specifically we should reiterate that the kind and 
quality of teaching that we offer is that of a r.iajor 
Research and Teaching University, and if we allow the 
quality of that faculty to slip we are cheating our students 
of the quality teaching which must be available In every 
State of any consequence. That slippage is on the verge of 
occurring in 1991, and we need to take steps to prevent it. 

Our first step is to reaffirm our intention to become 
one of the leading research and teaching universities in the 
country, our competitive advantage in this achievement lies 
in those of our programs which are in the top national 
rankings. These key departments need to be sustained well 
in bad times aa well as good. Their existence attracts the 
finest faculty and students, and the whole campus benefits 
from their prestige and the quality of their faoulty. The 
greatness of the whole is to an important extent decided by 
the number of such stellar departments. 

Next in importance is the n^ed to increase the number 



£ 



of such outstanding departments by adding resources to those 
programs close to a similar achievement. If we are less 
than enthusiastic in support of these very fine departments 
then we are missing our best opportunity to develop the 
breadth of excellence which national distinction demands. 

Of course we cannot be outstanding in all of our 
programs. If there are areas in which we cannot do well, we 
should consider phasing them out. Whatever we do should be 
done well. 

In making this reaffirmation" we do not plan to neglect 
our teaching responsibilities, but rather to restore a 
balance which has not been sufficiently clear this last 
/ear. We shall continue a serious concern with access to 
courses and with crowding of courses, although these two 
problems have greatly diminished as our student body has 
beco-ne smaller. We have not lost our concern for general 
Qdu.'iation or for over-subscribed majors. But we must 
recognize that our special contribution to undergraduate 
teaching is to provide an originality and liveliness that 
flourishes In the context of an excellent research-minded 
institution. 

How do we propose to put actions behind these 
reaffirmations? First we will seek Trustee support at the 
April meeting for the principles just outlined. Secondly we

PR 8 1991 



<J •-' 



TSo • ■■-■- i 



must take these principles into account in future 
allocations of vacancies for faculty recruitment. Thirdly 
we must seek Presidential support in helping us to fight 
against faculty losses from programs which are of particular 
importance. 

We make this reaffirmation at a time when Stat© budgets 
have never been lower and when the whole organization o£ 
public higher education is in doubt. But it is essential 
that we go into this uncertain future with a clear sense of 
what we stand for and what we offer, in the belief that 
public higher education needs what we can provide.

VOTED: That the President Ad Interim shall serve at the pleasure of the Board of

VOTED; That, notwithstanding any policy to the contrary, prior to the next regular 
meeting of the Board of Trustees, the Chair shall appoint a committee to 
undertake a national search for the permanent position of President of the 
University of Massachusetts, provided, however, that such committee 
include voting representatives from each of the campuses in the university 
sector and, provided further, that such committee shall commence the search 
process upon passage of university reorganization legislation or the conclusion 
of the 1991 legislative session if no such legislation passes. 

Chair Oakes then thanked Trustee O'Leary and all members of the Search Committee for the 
hard work and effort put into this process. 

Trustee Doherty then reported for the Athletic Committee about programs being phased out at 
the Amherst campus and the groundswell of support and contributions for the programs. He asked 
for a sense of the Board for a one year reprieve if funds could be secured for the variable cost the 
program.

that the Committee had discussed three items: the proposed Ph.D. in Language, Writing and 
Culture at UM /Boston, a proposal for a B.S. in Electrical Engineering and Strengthening the

UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

MINUTES OF THE SPECIAL MEETING OF THE 
BOARD OF TRUSTEES 

Tuesday, July 9, 1991; 10:00 a.m. , 
Trustees' Lounge 
250 Stuart Street 
Boston, Massachusetts 

Trustees and Trustee Staff : Chair Oakes; Trustees Baker, Bowman, Carlin, DiCara, 
Doherty, Foley, Haynes, Huguenin, Mahoney, McBay, Newnan, O'Leary, Reed, Taylor, 
Teixeira, Vittimberga and Zervas; Mrs. DeVico, Staff Assistant 

University Administration : President Fretwell; Vice President Lenhardt, General Counsel 
Searson 

UM/Amherst : Chancellor O'Brien; Vice Chancellor Page 

UM/Boston : Chancellor Penney; Provost Zompa, Vice Chancellor MacCormack, Ms. 
Heevy, Speaker, Student Senate 

UM/Worcester : Chancellor Lazare; Dr. Cooke, Faculty Representative 

The meeting convened at 10:17 a.m. The first order of business was the introduction 
of new Trustees: Mr. Kevin Newnan, newly elected student Trustee from the Amherst 
campus; Mr. Frank Vittimberga, student Trustee from Worcester and Mr. Daniel Taylor, 
formerly a member of the Board of Regents. 

Chair Oakes then updated the Board on a series of events that had taken place 
since the last Board meeting. The Attorney General's office had written Chair Oakes a 
letter listing violations of the open meeting law pertaining to the selection of an interim 
president at the June meeting. Those violations included failure to notify the candidates of 
a discussion of their character and reputation while in Executive Session. Another violation 
was taking a vote in Executive Session on a candidate which should have been done in open 
session. Chair Oakes pointed out that these violations were not recognized as such at the 
time and explained that the Attorney General has asked that certain votes taken on June 
5th, pertaining to the interim position be rescinded and revoted today in open session. 

He also added that the reorganization bill merging the University of Lowell and 
Southeastern Massachusetts University with the University of Massachusetts was passed by 
the Legislature yesterday and awaiting the Governor's signature. 

Chair Oakes then called on Trustee DiCara to make the first motion: 

MOVED : To rescind the votes of the Board of Trustees taken on 

June 5, 1991 regarding the President Ad Interim and to ratify the 
agreement signed by the Chair on behalf of the Board of Trustees and 
Dr. E. K. Fretwell confirming Dr. Fretwell as President Ad Interim of 
the University of Massachusetts effective July 1, 1991. 

The motion was seconded. 

Asking if there was any discussion, Trustee Mahoney asked to substitute the name of 
David Bartley for E.K. Fretwell. The motion was made. Trustee Mahoney then read the 
following motion: 



RESOLVED : By the unanimous vote by its Board of Directors that the 
Alumni Association of the University of Massachusetts 
at Amherst, respectfully asks that the Board of Trustees 
take the opportunity presented by the rescinded vote to 
fully reconsider its previous position of the presidency 
of the University of Massachusetts. We ask that the 
Board vote to appoint David Bartley to the Presidency. 
We support Mr. Bartley for the following reasons: 
he comes from a modest background, in Holyoke, representing 
the high aspirations of many University graduates, 
students and future students. He has dedicated his life to 
public service. He rose, with a strong, continuing education 
from the University of Massachusetts, to positions of political 
and administrative leadership in the Commonwealth. He 
has proven himself an able administrator in higher 
education in his leadership of Holyoke Community College 
-4n the past sixteen years. He is uniquely positioned 
to have an immediate impact on the political and financial 
and educational crisis facing the Commonwealth and the 
University. 

He added that this motion had been signed by Jack Leader, President of the 
Amherst Alumni Association. The motion was seconded. 

Chair Oakes explained that the motion voted on would be to substitute Trustee 
Mahoney*s motion for the original motion. He then passed out copies of the Attorney 
General's letter for the Board to read. Trustee Doherty asked about the Executive Session 
minutes cited in the letter and Chair Oakes said they would be distributed to anyone 
wishing to read them. It was then moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To rescind the votes of the Board of Trustees taken on 

June 5, 1991 regarding the President Ad Interim. 

Trustee O'Leary asked to go on record as Chair of the President's Search Committee, 
as being under the impression both candidates were well aware of any discussion concerning 
their character and reputation at the June 4th meeting and that neither candidate expressed 
any desire to be present. There was discussion on whether all three votes had to be 
rescinded at one time. Chair Oakes said the votes would be rescinded in order. He also 
explained that Trustee Mahoney's motion had been moved and seconded as well. 

There was then a request from Trustee Bowman on what a yes and no vote would 
indicate. Chair Oakes explained that a yes vote would mean the Board wants to consider 
the motion Trustee Mahoney had offered. A no vote means the Board will not consider the 
motion and the Board will go back to Trustee DiCara's motion. 

Trustee Mahoney's vote came to the floor and on a 9-9 vote, the Chair declared it 
defeated. It was then 

VOTED : To ratify the agreement signed by the Chair on behalf of the Board 

of Trustees and Dr. E. K. Fretwell confirming Dr. Fretwell as 
President Ad Interim of the University of Massachusetts effective 
July 1,1991. 

It was then moved, seconded and 



VOTED : To rescind the votes of the Board of Trustees taken on June 5, 1991 

regarding the term of the President Ad Interim. Further, that the 
President Ad Interim shall serve at the pleasure of the Board of 
Trustees for a term of no less than six months and ending upon the 
appointment of a permanent president but in no event longer than 
two years, provided, however, that the President Ad Interim shall 
not be a candidate for the permanent position as President of the 
University as presently constituted or as may be reorganized. 
Further, that the President present to the Board of Trustees 
within ninety days of his appointment a progress report concerning 
the conditions of and future plans for the University of 
Massachusetts. 

Chair Oakes then explained that the next vote reflects the changes the 
Reorganization Bill will bring; because there will soon be a new Board, the Search 
Committee for a permanent president will be appointed at that time. It was moved, 
seconded and ""^ 

VOTED : To rescind the votes of the Board of Trustees taken on June 5, 1991 

regarding the national search committee. Further, to recommend 
to the new Board of Trustees that a committee be appointed to 
conduct a nation-wide search for the appointment of a permanent 
President. 

Dr. Fretwell was then introduced to the Board and informed them that the 
Reorganization Bill would be signed by the Governor this Thursday, July 11th. 

Budget Reduction Plans was the next item discussed. Chancellor O'Brien discussed 
the estimated shortfall for FY92 of $20 million at the Amherst campus. He recommended 
the shortfall be divided between increased fees and program cuts. Included in his proposed 
p>kn was a 9% cut from the "administration" amounting to $5 million dollars and a $5 
million cut from Schools and Colleges amounting to another $5 million dollars. 

There was then discussion on such issues as 1) why mere isn't a policy on how much 
students should have to pay to attend UMass; 2) why were the students always to carry the 
burden of the budget shortfall; 3) a need for a study on how some programs can be combined; 
aatd 4) why haven't faculty members been laid off due to the fact that enrollments are down. 

Trustee Newnan spoke of his support for the fee increases to avoid severe program 
reductions at the Amherst campus. Deans Byron, Helgeson and Jackson offered their views 
©a the budget reduction plans and the devastation their colleges/schools were experiencing 
including the closing of the Waltham Field Station. 

Chancellor Penney then spoke to her plans regarding budget reduction, and the 
recommendations made by the Academic Planning and Fiscal Policy Council, which worked 
throughout the year on ways to down-size UMass-Boston while maintaining the quality of 
education. She outlined the Council's proposal which included an increase in the Curriculum 
Sopport Fee. First, to reduce central administration by $2.7 million. She had notified the 
unions of a reduction in force representing classified and professional staff. Second, 
reductions in collegial administration involving 20 classified and professional staff in the 
administrative areas of each of the five colleges, the Centers and the Institutes. Third, 
academic program reductions for a net savings of $634,000. 



The fourth step recommended by the Council was to close the downtown campus, 
which she did not support, because preparations to close the building should have been 
started months ago to avoid disruption of classes and programs. Also, bids would have to be 
made to move the college to the Harbor and renovations started. 

The final step, the raising of fees, came as a last resort. A further reduction in 
faculty would mean students could not be properly served. She pointed out that the 
Governor's budget had no appropriation for the William Joiner Center, a Center that was 
vital to veterans. However, the Conference Committee had recommended funding for 
$319375 so a small number of lay-off notices will be rescinded. 

Chair Oakes then called on Ms. Karen Heevy, the elected speaker of the Student 
Senate at UM/Boston. She spoke of the impact these fee increases would have on many 
students and that many students would not be returning. She stressed the need for the Board 
to support the urban mission of the Boston campus and urged the Trustees to reconsider these 
fee increases. 

Trustee McBay asked Chancellor O'Brien about monies set aside for unmet need and 
how many students would be affected by the increases in unmet need. Chancellor O'Brien 
assured the Board that there would be no student with unmet need who is now getting 
financial aid on the Amherst campus. 

It was then moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To establish for FY1992 Curriculum Support Fees of $900 per semester 

for full-time undergraduate students and of $785 per semester for full- 
time graduate students at the Amherst campus (with pro rata fees for 
other students), and at the Boston campus Curriculum Support Fees of 
$800 per semester for full-time students, $250 for students with 4 to 7 
credits, and $110 for students with 1 to 3 credits. Further, 
to approve the statements of trust and revised budgets, all as 
contained in Doc. T91-062 and Doc. T91-045, Addendum 1. 

Trustees Baker, Carlin and Foley voted against the motion. Trustee Haynes was recorded as 
present. 

It was further 

VOTED : To establish Student Health Fees for FY1992 in the amount of $370.50 

for students at the Amherst campus, and at the Boston campus in the 
amount of $47 per semester for students with 7 or more credits, $25 
per semester for students with 1 to 6 credits, and $20 per semester for 
students attending summer school. Further, to approve the 
statements of trust and revised budgets, all as contained in Doc. T91- 
062 and Doc. T91-045, Addendum 1. 

Trustees Baker, Carlin and Foley against the motion. Trustee Haynes was recorded as 
present

and members of standing Committees of the Board of Trustees 
for terms extending to the annual meeting of the Board of 
Trustees in October, 1992. 

The schedule of future dates was then presented. After a discussion of the proposed 
number of meetings per year and trustees' responsibilities, it was suggested that other dates 
be set aside for such purposes as orientation visits to the campuses. 



k 



There was then a discussion about the upcoming meeting and President Fretwell was 
asked to report at the Executive Committee on several items such as where we are in 
relation to the memo of understanding and to share the campus mission statements and 
proposed university statement. Other items President Fretwell said he would report on were 
the Search for President and the state of the university through a report of the President. 

In concluding the meeting, Chair Oakes read the attached statement which he asked to 
be communicated to the five campuses' faculty, students and administrators indicating the 
sense of the Board has about its responsibility, and its mission.

GORDON N. OAKES, JR., CHAIR 
REMARKS MADE AT THE SEPTEMBER 5, 1991 SPECIAL MEETING OF THE BOARD 

"Some of us have served before as trustees of one of the three institutions, and others are 
newly appointed. 

But, when we accepted appointment as trustees of the new University of Massachusetts, 
knowingly or unknowingly, we took on a responsibility unmatched in the history of public 
higher education in this Commonwealth. 

We are embarked on a new mission, greater in interest than any one campus. Of course we 
want to champion the campuses with which we have been closely associated and admire 
greatly. But, our responsibility as trustees of the University of Massachusetts is to the 
citizens of the Commonwealth for whom we hold this new University in trust for 
safekeeping and nurturing. 

Our responsibility is awesome, for the decisions we make in the months and years ahead 
will directly affect the lives and futures of thousands of young men and women. As we forge 
this new University we could become consumed by the details of the merger and ignore long- 
range goals. We cannot let this happen. We must advocate and champion the cause of 
public higher education as never before, while making the policy and organizational 
decisions that will lead this university to greatness. 

The economic and political events of the past three years have changed public higher 
education in Massachusetts. We cannot look back and hope for the past. But there must be a 
restoration of the Commonwealth's confidence in and commitment to our campuses and our 
faculty, staff and students. And we must work to restore the morale of faculty and staff who 
have dedicated their lives to enriching the minds of the students entrusted to them so that 
they can go on to contribute to a better world. 

Faculty and staff have been furloughed and have gone without pay increases for three or 
four years. Fortunately most of them have remained faithful to their commitments here in 
the Commonwealth and have not been lured away by offers from other universities. For this 
loyalty and commitment they deserve our gratitude. This loyalty will wither unless there 
is recognition that their efforts are valued and appreciated. The top faculty and staff in our 
system will not dedicate their careers to a mission of mediocrity. They aspire to greater 



-4- 



heights. As trustees, we must make sure that we articulate a vision and set lofty goals for 
this institution that will earn the confidence of our faculty, students and staff and the 
citizens of this state, and fight to fulfill them. 

The problems are many and thorny. The economy is sour and tax dollars to maintain and 
improve the quality of life are limited for many worthy state supported institutions. 
Students and parents have seen dramatic increases in college expenses, to the point that 
students can no longer work their way through college with one or two jobs as many of us did. 
Instead, if they are willing to take on the burden, they will be faced with years of loan 
repayments that will preclude many of them from ever having enough for a down payment 
on a home. 

Public higher education has always been a vehicle for fulfilling the American dream that 
every person should have the opportunity to achieve success without regard to their means 
or background. 

Strong measures to bring the state's finances under control were necessary, but there comes a 
point when a new direction must be taken, a new vision presented and a new leadership 
enjoined to build a better Commonwealth. That time is now. The Governor has set a goal of 
making this a "world class" University in the coming decade. Public Higher Education has 
been reorganized, and a new Secretary who understands the need to ensure affordable, 
quality education is with us as well as the new legislative leadership. A new President and 
five able chancellors are ready to move forward to build a new university for our citizens. 
Dedicated faculty and staff who deserve our thanks and our confidence and our commitment 
are hard at work. 

Just as we must provide opportunity for the best education for our young people, we must 
seize the opportunity to change the face of public higher education. As trustees of a new 
revitalized University of Massachusetts we have the chance to do that. Let's begin now- 
together. It is a most noble enterprise."

Trustee Taylor then gave the report of the Committee on Academic and Student Affairs. 
The first item considered was Re-approval of New Programs at Amherst. Boston and 
Dartmouth . The campuses were seeking re-approval of thirteen academic program proposals 
which had been approved by the former boards of trustees at the University of 
Massachusetts, the University of Lowell and Southeastern Massachusetts University. He

Program in Lang ua ge. Writing and Culture at the Boston campus. This program will 
award a doctorate degree in Language, Writing and Culture to teachers who will in turn 
train teachers in an area of specialization. He added he was impressed with the thought 



-2- 



that went into this program and that it is almost uniquely responsive to the mission of the 
Boston campus in focussing on urban needs, changing demographics in the country and 
certainly in urban areas such as Boston. It was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To approve the establishment of the Ph.D. in Language, 

Writing and Culture at the University of Massachusetts at 
Boston as contained in Doc. T91-113. 

The next item considered was A pproval of the 1991-1992 Affirmative Action Plan for the

VOTED : To approve the 1991-1992 Affirmative Action Plan for the 
University of Massachusetts at Amherst as contained in 
Doc.T91-lll. 

The third item recommended was the appointment of three faculty members as 
Distinguished University Professors at the Amherst campus. He said the Committee 
discussed whether the University should be moving forward when a policy had not been 
established for the new five campus University. The judgment was that this recognition was 
important and that a policy should eventually be established University-wide. It was 
moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To concur with the President in the appointment of Dr.

Ivey as Distinguished Professors at the University of

graduation lists of the University of Massachusetts at 
Amherst subject to completion of all requirements as 
certified by the Recorder of the campus. (Doc. T91-105) 

In concluding his report, Trustee Taylor said it is important for the Task Force on 
Academic and Student Affairs to try to think of the kind of standards that can be applied to 
help Trustees review new academic programs keeping in mind how they can serve the entire 
University and how they relate to the larger public higher education system of the State. 

Trustee O'Leary then gave the report of the Committee on Administration and Finance. 
The first item was approval of the FY1992 Operating Budg et. Trustee O'Leary indicated 
that the document reflects budgets of Dartmouth and Lowell as previously approved by 
their Board of Trustees. He added that this document anticipates no reversions or fee 
increases for FY1992. It was moved, seconded 

VOTED : To approve the FY1992 Operating Budget for the Amherst, 
Boston, Worcester campuses and the Maurice Donahue 
Institute and President's Office as contained in Doc. T91-101. 

The next item was the FY1993 State Budget Request . Trustee O'Leary said that the 
document had been presented at the Committee meeting. Although it was recommended, it 
is done with the knowledge and understanding that a great deal of work still needs to be 
done. He then asked Chancellor Hogan, who chairs the University Budget Task Force, to 
give a brief report of the recommendations. 

Chancellor Hogan indicated that the FY1993 Request was based on a set of guidelines 
the Task Force agreed on. Namely, that it would be useful to make a statement about the 



most critical needs of the University. He stated it is a budget which is focussed on the very 
narrow task of protecting the academic integrity of the University and preserving its ability 
to support economic development and competitiveness. It does that by speaking about the 
need for salary increases but not recommending any money in the present version. It also 
speaks of the bare needs in terms of physical plant maintenance and did not want to address 
the issue of what would normally fall under capital improvements to the physical plant. 

Trustee O'Leary noted the obligation of the administration to submit the budget 
document to the state but added that the Administration and Finance Committee should 
receive final copy of the document. It was moved, seconded and

contained in the preliminary FY1993 State Budget Request (Doc. T91-

$285.4 million. The request shall include funding for the state

state library special appropriation of approximately $1.2 million, 
matching student aid of approximately $2.1 million, McNair 
Reserves of approximately $1.2 million, state special priority 
funding of approximately $10.6 million, and budget options of 
approximately $30.7 million. 



and further, 



To authorize the President to modify the request by incorporating 
Trustee concerns with particular emphasis on wages and deferred 
maintenance, and approve the final FY 1993 State Budget Request 
in the amount of $285.4 million and based on the principles contained 
in Doc. T91-109, with any revisions that may be necessary. 

The next item was Funding for the Purchase of Two Biotech Park which had been 
previously approved by the UMass Board to be financed from the Building Authority. 
However, with the recent building authority refinancing in August there is now insufficient 
debt capacity to conduct this effort. It was recommended that the UMass Foundation 
purchase the building and that it be financed from funds other than the Hospital Trust Fund 
and through HEFA financing. The motion was made, seconded and amended by including in 
the vote, that the purchase price not to exceed $14.5 million dollars.

the Biotech II building for a purchase price not to exceed $14.5

Chair Oakes then gave the report of the Executive Committee . The first item was the 
Establishment of Campus Councils . Without discussion, it was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To establish for each campus a council which shall be broadly 
representative of the community, alumni(ae), and students, and 
shall, at the request of the Chancellor, advise and make 
recommendations to the Chancellor regarding the campus, and 
undertake such other activities as shall be determined by the 
Chancellor. 

Members shall be appointed by the Board of Trustees upon 
nomination of the campus Chancellor. Factors to be considered in 
nominating members for appointment shall include (a) high 
standing in one's professional activities and /or community, (b) an 
understanding of and affinity for the mission of the campus, (c) a 
strong belief in and a commitment to private and public sector 
support of public higher education, and (d) a willingness to set an 
example of generous service and support for the campus. 

Members of each council shall serve a one year term and are subject to 
reappointment. Council members shall serve without compensation, 
but travel and other expenses related to official business may be 
authorized and funded by the Chancellor. (Doc. T91-108) 

The Chair then asked to defer Honorary Degrees to the end of the agenda. 

Under Other Business, Trustee Winston indicated that he had been approached by 
students from UM/ Boston at the Downtown Campus regarding the discontinuation of health 
services at that location. 

Chair Oakes then called on Chancellor Penney to comment. She indicated she shared 
the students concern and wished the campus could still provide all the programs and services 
it used to, but in July there was brought to the Board a very painful plan for downsizing 
which included layoffs and program discontinuances and mergers of areas of the campus. 
The plan was based on recommendations from a committee of faculty, students and staff and 
one recommendation was a very significant reduction in health services. The total 
recommendation was not accepted but included discontinuation of health services at CPCS. 
Health services are still available at the Harbor campus and there is a free bus to bring 
students to the campus. She added that Vice Chancellor Desmond has been meeting with 
people at the Downtown campus and will continue to meet with them. 

The Trustees then raised questions of the number of students served and availability of 
services in emergency situations. Trustee O'Leary added that this was part of a 
recommendation considered last spring and is something appropriate to be managed by the 
Chancellor.

She then noted that a number of students would like to be heard on the issue of 
health services. She added that she has appointed a committee to look at health services, 
not the reopening of services, but the range of services and make recommendations for next 
year. 

Trustee Haynes asked that the Board dispense with the regular order of business to 
hear the students. There being no objection Chair Oakes asked Trustee O'Leary to report on 
the discussion at the Administration and Finance Committee. Trustee O'Leary said health 
services is an issue that has been before the Board at the last two meetings. He said that

Chair McBay convened the meeting at 12:08 p.m. 

The first item of discussion was the Alcoholic Beverages Policy— UM/Boston. Mr. 
Morris, Associate Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs spoke of the need for an updated 
policy concerning the use of alcohol on the Boston campus. The policy would govern all 
individuals on campus including students, faculty and staff. Counsel Searson had made some 
minor changes to the policy sent to the Committee and the new policy would rescind the 
former policy passed by the Board in 1975. 

The Committee made a change to Section 7, adding "The Director of Public Safety 
for the University shall determine the appropriate number of police officers, if any, . . ." 
to the language for the Executive Committee to act on at their meeting later in the day. 

The next item, A ppointment with Tenure— UM/Worcester was briefly discussed by 
Provost Bratt who told of Dr. Robert Zurier's national reputation in the field of 
Rheumatology. It was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To recommend that the Board concur with the President 

in the appointment of Robert B. Zurier, M.D. as Professor 
of Medicine with tenure at the University of Massachusetts 
at Worcester. (Doc. T91-006) 

An Appointment with Tenure— UM/Boston was next discussed by Provost Zompa. Dr. 
Zelda Gamson is highly regarded in the field of higher education and will make an 
important contribution to the newly organized Graduate College of Education. It was moved, 
seconded and 



VOTED : To recommend that the Board concur with the President 

in the appointment of Dr. Zelda Gamson as 
Full Professor with tenure in the Graduate College of 
Education at the University of Massachusetts at Boston. 
(Doc. T91-006) 

The next item was Graduation Lists— UM/ Amherst and UM/Worcester. Without 
discussion, it was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To recommend that the Board approve the January and 

February, 1991 graduation lists at the University of 
Massachusetts at Amherst and the June, 1991 graduation 
lists at the University of Massachusetts at Worcester, 
subject to the completion of all requirements as certified 
by the Recorder of the campus. (Doc. T91-001) 

The next agenda item was the Scientific Misconduct Policy— UM/Worcester. This too 
was a discussion item that would be voted on by the Executive Committee. It was explained 
that Federal guidelines require that each institution applying for or receiving support under 
the Public Health Services Act must have a written policy in place that deals with possible 
scientific misconduct. Counsel Searson noted that similar policies should be forthcoming 
from the Amherst and Boston campuses. 

An Institutional Program Review of the Music Department— UM /Boston was then 
discussed. The Board of Regents, in 1982, established a program review process for all 
undergraduate programs in public higher education. The Music Department at Boston had 
been reviewed in the Spring of 1990 and the review team had been impressed with the 
quality of the curriculum Provost Zompa and the Chair of the Music Department have been 
meeting to discuss ways of improving the Department due to the fact that they had recently 
lost an important faculty member. 

The next item, Le gal Services Center— UM/ Amherst, was discussed in great detail. 
Trustee McQuilken updated the Committee regarding this issue and explained the work the 
Dispute Resolution Committee had done since the last meeting in December. 

President Duffey had sent to the Board a revised proposal worked on by the 
Committee Facilitator, Judith McBride, Vice Chancellor Madson, Counsel Searson and 
Trustee DiCara. Judith McBride, Joanne Vanin, Dean of Students, Natasha Diephuis, 
President of the Student Government Association then made presentations explaining their 
interpretations of the revised proposal. 

Basically, the revised proposal limited the Legal Services Center to represent 
individual students in litigation solely on landlord /tenant and consumer protection matters. 
An advisory committee would also be established by the Director of Student Activities to 
provide advice on issues related to the Legal Services Center. 

Trustee McQuilken passed out a motion that would detail the Legal Services Center's 
litigation authority should the Committee vote on it 

While the Committee members were impressed by the fact that the students wanted 
to solve their problems through the dispute resolution process, some members still had a 
problem with the litigation issue. There should be a way to resolve disputes out of court 
and lawsuits would not lead to favorable public relations with the community. 

It was then recommended that this issue be discussed at today's Executive 
Committee. Trustee McQuilken made a motion 



-2- 



To recommend to the Executive Committee that the 
Committee on Academic and Student Affairs express 
its appreciation for the process by which this document 
was created, while some members maintain reservations 
as to the litigation aspect of the proposal. 

The Committee voted against the entire motion and 

VOTED : To recommend to the Executive Committee that they 

express its appreciation for the process by which 
this document was created. 

An Amendment to the Code of Student Conduct— UM /Boston was the next item. 
Provost Zompa explained that the language changes reflect the elimination of the Office of 
the Dean of Student Services. It was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To recommend that the Executive Committee 

revise the Code of Student Conduct at the University of 
Massachusetts at Boston (Doc. T87-037B) by deleting all 
references to the "Dean of Students" and substituting in 
its place the title of "Associate Vice Chancellor for 
Student Affairs". 

Reports from the Student Trustees was the next topic of discussion. Trustee Canina 
talked about the continuing child care problem at the Boston campus and what was being 
done to help students with this need. Alternative sites were being looked at as well as 
continued discussion on the best way to solve this dilemma. He also spoke about organizing 
a public forum on different sides of the war in the Gulf. 

Trustee McQuilken reported that the student government officers of the Amherst 
campus have requested a commission to study the Student Government Association and how 
to restructure the whole student government process. They are awaiting a response from the 
campus Administration. 

Trustee Walsh reported on "Match Day", the day medical students would learn 
where their internships and residency programs would begin. 

Campus Reports was the next agenda item. Provost Zompa reported that Chancellor 
Penney had agTeed with the faculty staff union concerning furloughs and would look to 
draining subsidiary accounts to help with the budget crisis. 

Interim Provost Bratt discussed a task force assembled by Chancellor Lazare to look 
at the Governance document overseeing the Worcester campus, this being in response to 
national mandates as well as the fact that the document had not been revised in six years. 

Provost O'Brien expressed the campus' gratitude to Dean James John and Vice 
Chancellor Dennis Madson who have both taken new positions out-of-state. The campus 
would not be looking for replacements at this time of budget uncertainty but would appoint 
people from the campus in interim positions. The campus asked that a resolution be passed 
at the Board meeting expressing their appreciation for Dr. Madson's dedication to the 
students of Amherst and their issues. 

It was also decided that luncheon meetings with members of the Committee and 
with the Deans would be added to the agenda. These meetings would take place after the 
Board meeting.

The Mission Statement UM /Worcester was discussed. Chancellor Lazare talked about 
the process involved in developing the Medical Center's Mission Statement which included 
the involvement of 5,000 employees over a six month period. Basically, the Mission of the 
Medical Center is to serve the people of the Commonwealth with the best care possible. 
As far as the educational aspect, the Medical School is dedicated to train physicians in a 
wide range of medical fields with an emphasis on practice in the public sector, specifically 
in underserved areas of Massachusetts. 



and 



The Committee commended the campus for an excellent report. It was moved, seconded 



VOTED : To recommend that the Board approve the Mission Statement for 

the Medical Center as contained in Doc. T91-029. 

The Committee then discussed Scholarly Misconduct Policies a t the Amherst campus. 
Campuses are required by federal regulations to have procedures in place dealing with 
scholarly misconduct including research fraud. Counsel Searson had not had sufficient time 
to fully review the document so it was agreed that it would be voted on as a preliminary 
document until Counsel could make some minor changes. It was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To recommend that the Executive Committee approve the 

Scholarly Misconduct Policies at the University of Massachusetts 
at Amherst as contained in Doc. T91-035 as a preliminary document. 

The Awarding of Discipline-Specific Ph.D. Degrees in the Graduate School of 
Biomedical Sciences, UM/ Worcester was the next agenda item. Dr. Bratt explained that in 
addition to the interdisciplinary degree in Biomedical Sciences, students would be able to 
receive doctoral degrees in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, Cell Biology, Immunology 
and Virology, Molecular Genetics and Microbiology, Pharmacology, and Cellular and 
Molecular Physiology. There will be no need for additional funding or space. It was 
moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To recommend that the Board authorize the University of 

Massachusetts at Worcester to award specific Ph.D. degrees 
in the programs/disciplines of Biochemistry and Molecular 
Biology, Cell Biology, Immunology and Virology, Molecular 
Genetics and Microbiology, Pharmacology, and Cellular and 
Molecular Physiology, as part of the approved Ph.D. in 
Medical Sciences. Further, to rename the Ph.D. in Medical 
Sciences as the Ph.D. in Biomedical Sciences. (Doc. T91-027) 

Next on the agenda, was Governance for Undergraduate Education at UM /Worcester. 
Chancellor Lazare felt it was time for some changes in the Governance Document and 
requested that the campus Educational Policy Committee's authority be strengthened and 
delegated principal authority for the Medical School with regard to planning and 
implementing the medical education for the training of physicians. 



-3- 



Counsel Searson asked for a change under the heading of Duties, that being "the 
Educational Policy Committee shall have the responsibility for planning, implementing, 
supervising, evaluating, and continuously revising a coherent and comprehensive program of 
general medical education for the training of physicians, subject to the authority of the 
Dean of the Medical School and the Chancellor." Another change recommended by the 
Committee and Counsel Searson was under the heading of Authority, "Recommendations 
of the Educational Policy Committee will be: a) approved, or sent back for 
reconsideration by the Dean within 20 working days of receipt of notification, 
b) approved, or sent back for reconsideration by the Chancellor within 20 working days 
of notification of the Dean's approval. There were no objections and the motion was 
moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To recommend that the Executive Committee approve the changes 

in the Governance Document for Undergraduate Education at the 
University of Massachusetts Medical School as contained in 
Doc. T79-042, Addendum 1, as amended. 

Greek Letter Organizations, UM /Amherst was the next item. This item was presented 
as a Statement of Relationship between the University at Amherst and General College 
Fraternities and Sororities. The statement would include standards for recruitment of new 
members, housing, discipline, etc. 

Counsel Searson raised questions concerning liability issues and asked for more time to 
review the document. The item was tabled. 

Program Reductions and Terminations at the Amherst campus was the next agenda 
item discussed. Due to the $18 million shortfall in the current budget it was proposed that 
the campus look very closely at the question of what programs should be reduced or 
possibly eliminated. Provost O'Brien stressed the point for the future, that priority 
programs be identified and saved from reductions. He explained that there was debate on 
the campus about across-the-board cuts versus preserving priority programs. 

There was much discussion about this issue and Committee members had many 
questions, such as who determines what the priority programs are. Provost O'Brien 
explained that once the Board showed their support to this issue, the matter would go back 
to the campus as to how priority programs will be identified and what process will be used 
to reduce and /or terminate certain programs. 

The Committee asked that the vote taken include the Boston and Worcester campuses 
as well as how budget cuts will affect all three campuses and their programs. They also 
agreed that priority programs should be identified to assure that they run effectively and 
that selective reductions in programs should be made when budget shortfalls occur. It was 
decided that the Provosts with the concurrence of General Counsel bring to tomorrow's 
Board meeting a vote endorsing this principle to include all three campuses. 

A T oint Baccalaureate Degree Program in International Hospitality Management with 
HOTELCONSULT in Switzerland, UM/Amherst was the next agenda item. This program 
was originally presented to this Committee last October for discussion. After a full campus 
governance review was completed, the campus has brought this back to Committee for 
action. 



The campus administration is very excited about this program and expects this joint 
program will strengthen the international dimension on campus. No additional resources 
would be required as the costs for personnel, travel and equipment would come through 
HOTELCONSULT. The Committee unanimously agreed with the campus' recommendation 
and it was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To recommend that the Board approve the establishment of 

a joint Baccalaureate degree program in International Hospitality 
Management in cooperation with HOTELCONSULT of Geneva, 
Switzerland. (Doc. T90-027A) 

There was then the annual Undergraduate Admissions and Financial Aid Reports . 
Provost Bratt gave the report of the Worcester campus. Regarding admission, the major 
concern on the Worcester campus was the recruitment of minority students. The Medical 
School is losing students to schools that offer better scholarships and loans. 

Another problem is the lack of funds for recruitment. The campus has had to diminish 
the personalized orientation program for applicants that was offered in the past. 
Counseling services have been reduced and applicants are being scared away by the 
financial instability of the State and the University. This discussion led to the subject of 
Tuition Waivers . 

The campus would like to delegate the authority to approve need-based tuition 
waivers to the Chancellor based on the rate consistent with the Board of Regents Need 
based tuition waivers for undergraduates. The Chancellor could establish a rate for tuition 
waivers which would be equal to five percent of tuition charged a year rather than a 
specific dollar amount. It was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To recommend that the Board delegate to the Chancellor 

of the University of Massachusetts at Worcester the 
authority to approved need-based tuition waivers equal to 
five percent of tuition charged in a given academic year. 
(Doc. T90-027A) 

Before the Amherst gave its report it was decided that because of time constraints, the 
Boston campus would give its Admissions and Financial Aid Report at the June Committee 
meeting. Provost Zompa then gave a brief Campus Report . The College of Arts and 
Sciences is in the process of establishing a Bachelor's degree in Electrical Engineering. This 
proposal will soon be coming to the Committee for action. He spoke on the on-going issue of 
Strengthening the Sciences and the progress the Chancellor's Advisory Committee has 
made. Their report is now in its last stages and will be submitted to the Chancellor in the 
near future. 

The Admissions and Financial Aid Report from the Amherst campus was then 
discussed. It was reported by Mr. Rinehart, Director of Admissions, that freshmen 
applications for the Fall of 1990 were down by 17% from the previous year. A non-enroller 
survey was done to find why students were turning down the University and 50% responded 
that negative publicity about the University and the State affected their decision not to 
enroll at the University. Because of the drop in applicants, the University accepted a 
higher percentage of non-resident students and will aggressively seek more such students in 
the future. 



f 



Stoit n 



S The picture for the Fall of 1991 looks a little brighter; as of this week there had been 

MAY ^ n IQqi a s many in-state applications as last year so they don't expect any significant drop in the 

number of in-state students entering the University from last year. 

Attracting and enrolling students of color continued to be a top priority at the Amherst 
campus and there was a 14% increase in minority student enrollment from 1989. They 
contribute this to aggressive recruitment efforts such as a Phon-o-thon, increased 
scholarships and a Minority Student Search Service. 

Mr. Sackett, Director of Financial Aid, then gave the Financial Aid Report. Funding 
this year for financial aid was increased due to the increased levels of Regents' Tuition 
Waiver Program as well as monies approved by the Board from the Trust Fund accounts. 
He then gave a break-down of a typical in-state student's budget for the year and where 
the money came from such as the Stafford Loan Program, the Perkins Loan Funds and Pell 
Grants. There is also a college work study program to help a student with books and living 
expenses. 

While the future of the state's economy looks bleak, the Financial Aid Office is 
constantly looking for ways to help students meet their unmet need to attend the 
University.

Minutes of the Meeting of the 
Committee on Academic and Student Affairs 

Wednesday, October 2, 1991; 11:00 p.m. 

Faculty Conference Room 

University of Massachusetts 

Worcester, Massachusetts 

Committee and Committee Staff: Trustee Taylor, Acting Chair; Trustees Oakes, Pacheco 
and Vittimberga; Mrs. Fontaine, Administrative Secretary 

Committee Members Absent: Trustees Chang and Reed 

Other Trustees: Trustees Bogan, Finnerty, Karam, Lewenberg, Newnan and Winston 

University Administration: President Fretwell, Chancellors Brazil, Hogan, Lazare, Penney 
and O'Brien 

Trustee Taylor, in the absence of Trustee Chang, called the meeting to order at 11:13 a.m. 
President Fretwell welcomed those in attendance. 

The first item on the agenda was Reapproval of New Programs . There were thirteen 
pending program proposals which had been approved by the previous Boards of Trustees and 
submitted to the Board of Regents. Following the reorganization, they were returned to the 
University for review. The Task Force on Academic and Student Affairs extensively re- 
evaluated and endorsed the programs. 

Chancellor O'Brien spoke to the process used to arrive at the recommendation. 
Speaking to the doctoral programs in Nursing at Lowell and Amherst, he said the Regents 
had reviewed Nursing on a statewide basis and concluded that it was appropriate to have a 
D.N.S. at Lowell and also a Ph.D. at Amherst. 

He also spoke to the Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering at University of Massachusetts 
Dartmouth, which will be the first doctoral degree at Dartmouth. 

At the Chair's request, Chancellor O'Brien addressed the differences between the 
Lowell and Amherst Nursing Programs. The Amherst Ph.D. program will be more basic to 
the theory or practice of nursing. 

Chancellor Hogan then reviewed the development of the Lowell program going back to 
1981. That program is positioned more closely toward the practitioner than a traditional 
research activity. 

There then ensued discussion and questions about the benefits to the Commonwealth, how 
many students will go through the program and stay in the region, and whether it is 
feasible and desirable to take all nursing programs and consolidate them. 

Chancellor Lazare asked to go on record that the Worcester campus being the academic 
health center might be relooking at the nursing programs at Worcester. Chancellor Penney 
also indicated the possibility of the Boston Campus revisiting this issue. 



Chair Oakes commented that he was surprised that the first group of programs that the 
Board looks at, since the consolidation of the University, all survived. He added that in an 
era of dwindling resources, the Committee is about to approve thirteen new programs and on 
the face of it that is difficult to justify. He then asked several questions: was there a cost 
analysis done for each of the programs, was there any prioritization of the programs? For 
example, if only five were approved, which five would they be. He also asked what the 
University was doing to allow for the costs of new programs? 

President Fretwell indicated that it was his intention following this discussion to take 
another look at the process. He added that without predicting the final outcome, he 
believes more attention should be given to such factors as: a clear need for the program now 
and in the future; a definite indication where the needed resources will come from. Absent 
budget improvements, the University cannot go on absorbing new programs forever. What 
programs should be considered for discontinuation at least on one or more campuses. Tangible 
earmarks of quality using external evaluation, where appropriate, particularly but not 
necessarily exclusively in regard to doctoral programs. Finally, the relationship, 
particularly but not exclusively of professional programs to future placement actualities in 
relationship with the other campuses. 

Trustee Taylor commented that he had some of the same concerns expressed by Chair 
Oakes. While it is very understandable that the University has to keep the process 
moving, the University's constituents, the Legislature, the public, does expect something to 
have changed. 

He added that it is important to identify in all of these areas where we are pulling 
together, and that it is troubling to be contemplating four, maybe five, Ph.D. programs in 
nursing even though one is a D.N.S. He suggested that for all future program proposals, the 
question of the impact upon the entire University needs to be explicit and addressed. After 
further discussion, it was suggested that the Committee consider the programs separately by 
Stages and that the approval of Stage I programs should carry with it the mandate that 
before making a Stage II submission there be a clear showing of how the programs serve the 
entire University. It was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To recommend that the Board approve the following Stage I academic 
degree program proposals: 

UMass-Amherst 

B.S. in Biology 

M.S. and Ph.D in Nutritional Science 

Ph.D. in Hotel, Restaurant and Travel Administration 

Ph.D. in Nursing 

UMass-Boston 

Ph.D. in Computer Science 

UMass-Dartmouth 

Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering 
B.A. in Music 

M.S. in Mechanical Engineering 
M.A.T in Teaching 



and, 



That prior to submitting the Stage II proposals all programs should clearly 
identify how they will serve the entire University. 



-2- 



Chancellor Penney spoke to the specifics of the Stage II Ed.D. in Education 
and answered questions regarding related costs and resources associated with the program. 

Chancellor Hogan in speaking to Lowell's Stage II proposals stated that Lowell has 
made clear statements on the resource issue as the campus moves to the graduate level and 
that it would be done by locking personnel costs into ratios. No additional funds are sought 
for the Doctoral Nursing Program, but the nursing faculty has developed a proposal to the 
federal government for enrichment start-up funds. In response to the question about what 
this program could add to the single university, he commented an enrichment at the practice 
of nursing. 

Trustee Taylor voiced his unease about embarking down a path on programs without 
having the opportunity to fully understand our mission or the standards to be established to 
carry our mission out, but from the discussion he said he thought they were sound programs 
and will serve the entire university. It was then moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To recommend that the Board approve the following Stage II academic 
degree program proposals: 

UM-Boston 

Ed.D. in Education 

UM-Lowell 

D.N.S. in Nursing 

and further, 

That these programs be implemented to serve the needs of the entire 
University. (Doc. T91-112) 

The next item was approval of the Amherst 1991-1992 Affirmative Action Program . 
Chancellor O'Brien said he thought the plan was a great improvement. He also explained 
the campus Special Opportunity Fund which is used to assist in the appointment of minority 
or women faculty. Counsel Searson suggested that for future plans the format be beefed up on 
its persuasive quality not for its substance. 

It was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To recommend that the Board approve the 1991-1992 Affirmative Action 
Plan for the University of Massachusetts at Amherst as contained in Doc. 
T91-111. 

The next item was A ppointment of Distinguished University Professors at Amherst. 
After discussion, it was suggested that Chancellors review and develop a policy to recognize 
distinguished professors for the single university. 

It was moved, seconded and

/ MINUTES OF THE MEETING OF THE 

* COMMITTEE ON ACADEMIC AND STUDENT AFFAIRS 

Wednesday, December 4, 1991; 12:00 p.m. 

250 Stuart Street 

Thirteenth Floor Conference Room 

University of Massachusetts 

Boston, Massachusetts 

Committee and Committee Staff : Chair Taylor; Trustees Oakes, Pacheco, Reed and 
Vittimberga; Mrs. DeVico, Staff Assistant 

University Administration : President Fretwell; Chancellor O'Brien; Provosts Gordon, 
Safwat, Dalgleish and Bratt; Vice Chancellor Foy 

Chair Taylor called the meeting to order at 12:09 p.m. 

President Fretwell reported that the Academic and Student Affairs Task Force is in 
the process of developing a procedure within the University scrutinizing new programs 
which are proposed for agreement with the Higher Education Coordinating Council (HECC). 
This process, once in place, will help determine what programs are necessary and cost- 
efficient. 

Chair Taylor then asked Professor Paroissien and Vice Chancellor Babcock to give a 
presentation by the Library Committee which has been formed to review and recommend to 
the Task Force, the strengths and needs of the libraries of all five campuses. A more 
comprehensive report will be made to the Committee in February. Professor Paroissien then 
spoke of the devastating effects the budget cuts were having on the campus libraries, our 
most important resource. In a recent study, Massachusetts was noted as being the state that 
gave the least money to its libraries. 

Vice Chancellor Babcock spoke about the the Library Committees' goals which 
included identifying current strengths and weaknesses of the libraries as a system, 
addressing the fiscal structures as they affect the libraries and strategies for developing non- 
appropriated funds to help support the libraries. 

Chair Taylor thanked Professor Paroissien and Vice Chancellor Babcock for their 
presentation and introduced the next item, Scholarly Misconduct Policy. UM/Amherst. 
Provost Gordon explained that this policy had come before the Committee last April. 
General Counsel Searson had suggested several revisions such as 1) making an administrator 
(instead of a committee) responsible for the final decision on whether misconduct had 
occurred; 2) avoiding having the Vice Chancellor assist either the respondent or 
complainant in the preparation of their case; 3) precluding the presence of attorneys in the 
formal hearing; and 4) limiting the application of the policy to graduate students rather 
than any students, since undergraduates' conduct is covered by another document. All of 
these changes have been incorporated into the current document. It was then moved, 
seconded and 

VOTED : To recommend that the Board approve the 

Scholarly Misconduct Policy at the University 
of Massachusetts Amherst as contained in 
Doc. T91-035A. 

The next item was Awards of Tenure. UM/Amherst and UM/Worcester. All 
individuals came with high recommendations and it was moved, seconded and 



♦ 



VOTED ; To recommend that the Board concur with the President 

in the award of tenure to the following individuals: 

Amherst: 

MaryAnne Bright as Associate Professor of Nursing 

Graham Gal as Associate Professor of Accounting 

Worcester: 

Steven N. Treistman as Professor of Pharmacology 
Christie A. Holland as Associate Professor of Radiation 
Oncology and Molecular Genetics and Microbiology. 

(Doc. T91-119) 

The next item, A ppointment with Tenure, UM/ Amherst, was briefly discussed by 
Provost Gordon reporting that the candidate would be a highly valued teacher in the 
outstanding Department of Linguistics. It was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To recommend that the Board concur with the President 

in the appointment of Ellen Woolford as Associate 
Professor of Linguistics at the University of Massachusetts 
Amherst. (Doc. T91-120) 

The next item, Transfer of Tenure at the Amherst campus involved a transfer from 
the Department of Professional Preparation in Physical Education to the School of Education 
where the individual and the School would both be better served. The transfer has the 
approval of both the departments and deans. It was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To recommend that the Board concur with the President 

in the transfer of tenure for Patricia Griffin from the 
Department of Professional Preparation in Physical 
Education to the School of Education at the University 
of Massachusetts Amherst. (Doc. T91-131) 

The Affirmative Action Plan for 1991-1992. UM /Worcester, was then reported on by 
Provost Bratt. Some of the highlights of the year included: 1) The Equal Opportunity 
Office working closely with the Chancellor in the development of the Medical Center's 
Mission Statement; 2) the groundwork for the Women's Issues Committee to become a 
standing committee of the Medical Center; and 3) the Chancellor's proposals of progressive 
steps to increase the recruitment and retention of minority students and faculty members. 

In terms of female students, the Medical School is well above the national average 
of 36-40 percent. The overall percentage rate is 48 percent; the entering class is 56 percent 
which is expected to increase. Chair Taylor inquired about the difficulty recruiting 
minorities because of a lack of scholarship funds. Provost Bratt said that this is something 
the campus is looking into. 

It was then moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To recommend that the Board approve the 1991-1992 

Affirmative Action Plan for the University of Massachusetts 
Worcester as contained in Doc. T91-125. 

Without discussion Graduation Lists, UM/ Boston and UM /Worcester was then voted 
on. It was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To recommend that the Board approve the December, • 

1991 graduation lists at the University of Massachusetts

Boston, subject to completion of all requirements as 
certified by the Recorder of the campus. 

and, 

To award a Ph.D. Degree in Immunology/Virology from 
the University of Massachusetts Worcester to Elizabeth 
Eynon, subject to completion of all requirements as certified 
by the Recorder of the campus. 

Chancellor O'Brien then gave a report of the Task Force on Academic and Student 
Affairs . In meeting to establish goals and develop policies and procedures between the five 
campuses, the Task Force felt that there was no need for all Student Affairs policies to be 
the same, that policies should respond to the needs of the particular campus. It was also 
agreed that all policies be reviewed with the General Counsel for issues of legal policy and 
liability. 

He spoke further of the need for a well defined policy for the approval of academic 
programs. The task force is working closely with the Higher Education Coordinating 
Council staff members to develop a University policy which is in its second draft. Chair 
Taylor stressed the need to find out what standards and policies we apply internally to 
make sure that we are approving only the programs we want to approve and how they fit in 
with what the state is doing as a whole. 

The Task Force is also looking at the issue of long distance learning efforts (MCET, 
video, data networks). The School of Engineering has several of these programs in place. A 
technical group composed of deans of the schools/departments of engineering are developing 
a strategy for the expansion of technology and teaching to other schools and departments. 

Financial Aid is an urgent issue the Task Force is working on due to the consolidation 
of UMass with Lowell and Dartmouth. The new UMass must be certified and determined as 
eligible to receive Title IV funds. The application has been submitted and a technical group 
of Financial Aid Directors is meeting to address these concerns and report back to the Task 
Force. 

The Task Force is also working on the ability of students to transfer among campuses, 
either by course by course, by semester or on a permanent basis. A group of transfer 
admissions officers and registrars will meet and prepare a strategy for implementation of a 
cross campus program. 

Additional issues the Task Force is working on include a joint admissions process, 
advantages of faculty exchange and the policy of issuing tenure. The Committee will be 
updated on all these issues at the February meeting. Meanwhile, the Task Force would like 
the Trustees to attend informational workshops so that the Trustees better understand these 
issues as well as hearing from them what topics they would consider useful. 

Chair Taylor commended the Task Force for the important work they are doing and 
asked that the Committee be kept informed on their progress. 

There being no further business, the Committee adjourned at 1:25 p.m.

Minutes of the Meeting of the 

Committee on Administration and Finance 

Wednesday, October 2, 1991; 1:00 p.m. 

Faculty Conference Room 

University of Massachusetts 

Worcester, Massachusetts 

Committee and Committee Staff : Chair O'Leary; Trustees Bogan, Flores, Lewenberg, 
Newnan and Oakes; Mrs. Fontaine, Administrative Secretary 

Committee Members Absent; Trustees Poduska and Spence 

University Administration : President Fretwell, Chancellor O'Brien, Chancellor Penney, 
Chancellor Brazil, Chancellor Hogan, Chancellor Lazare, Vice President Lenhardt and 
General Counsel Searson 

Trustee O'Leary convened the meeting at 1:45 p.m. and called on President Fretwell 
to introduce the first item, the FY1992 Budget . He indicated that it includes the budgets 
for all campuses; Lowell and Dartmouth budgets having been approved by the former 
Boards. Vice President Lenhardt spoke to the budget which he said assumes there will be 
no more state reversions in the current year and no need to revisit student tuition and fees. 
He also stated that the budget shows the University is educating some 50,000 students and 
that quality programs continue to be offered throughout the University. He added that it is 
believed that University costs in terms of other peer type institutions are very competitive 
and that conversely tuition & fees are becoming non-competitive. 

The Chancellors spoke about the steps the campuses have had to take to live within 
the budget. 

In concluding discussion on this item, Trustee O'Leary stated that this is an excellent 
document. He added that as the summary indicates although there's been a revenue 
reduction of 12% from the state much of that revenue has been made up by increases in 
tuition retention and curriculum support fees. At the same time, the real concern is the 
declining level of maintenance and deterioration of the physical plant. It was moved, 
seconded and 

VOTED : To recommend that the Board approve the FY1992 Operating Budget 

for the Amherst, Boston, Worcester campuses and the Maurice 
Donahue Institute and President's Office as contained in Doc. T91- 
101. 

The second item on the agenda was the FY 1993 Budget Request . President 
Fretwell in speaking to this item mentioned the work of the five Task Forces in the areas of 
Budget, Financial Management, Academic and Student Affairs, Human Resources, and 
Information Systems. He then asked Chancellor Hogan, Chair of the Task Force on Budgets, 
to speak to the recommendation before the Committee. 

Chancellor Hogan said that the Task Force started with the assumption that 
historical roles would continue with an overarching concern for the economic well being of 
the state. Some of the principles laid out included an understanding that the budget would 
have to be a publicly defensible request reflecting the realities of the present economic 



situation in the state and, at the same time, making an honest statement about the new 
university which has been asked to bring itself to world class public status. It is a document 
that is guided by a principle that enrollments have, on average, in the University declined. 
There are some continuing concerns about the students' ability to pay and the demographics. 
At the same time, there is the question of those things which are not as closely coupled to 
enrollment and salary, for example the deferred maintenance, laboratory equipment, the 
library holdings. Those things campuses have to have even if you suffer 5, 10 or 15% change 
in enrollment. Finally, he said there was the question of knowing that the University had 
to come to grips with the issues of accountability, productivity, assessment, disclosure so as 
to impact the ultimate role of public support. 

It was decided to recommend three areas. First, on the maintenance budget to add to 
the present $235 million dollar appropriation from the state eight categories identified 
university-wide: student access and retention, academic and research equipment, graduate 
student stipends, facilities maintenance, communications technology, campus cooperation and 
synergy, economic development projects and mandatory considerations, for an increase of 
under 13%. On special appropriations, it was suggested asking for noticeable improvement in 
financial aid and library holdings. Finally, there was a non-payroll inflation request. 

The budget is focused tightly on the issue of protecting the academic integrity and 
helping to preserve the ability of the University to move on the competitiveness issue. 

Several trustees commented about the salary levels and the lack of increases over 
the last several years and that the document did not address it. There was then a 
discussion on the implications, collective bargaining factors, and who, under the new 
legislation, is the employer. 

Chancellor Hogan added that he thinks the University faces a real serious threat to 
having its talent raided in the foreseeable future. On the other hand, one of the first 
principles was that the document had to be publicly defensible under the current economic 
conditions and that across the board increases could not be defended at this time. 

Trustee Flores said it was the trustees responsibility and it was important to send a 
signal to the Legislature, the Commonwealth and the Governor that additional funds are 
necessary and budgets should reflect that we have a responsibility to the employees. It 
was further suggested that the University acknowledge the economic climate and put forth 
its minimum recommended budget along with a supplemental part of the budget addressing 
the issue of payroll being sensitive to the collective bargaining process. 

There was also expressed the sentiment that the University needs to be in a position 
to demonstrate by way of accomplishments that its working together as a five campus 
system. Several trustees expressed the need for accurate information and statistics to support 
what the campuses need and that the budget be projected out through 1994. Additional 
information requested included how productivity has increased, budget savings resulting from 
the consolidation, and the faculty/ student ratio. In response to a question about a outside 
audit, Vice President Lenhardt responded that we have hired a firm to define the costs 
within the university. The Committee requested that the scope of services be provided to 
the committee for their review. 

In conclusion, Chair O'Leary suggested that the Committee will over the next 
several months be reviewing a completed FY1993 budget and recommended that the 
Committee adopt the budget as presented with the suggestion that the spirit of the 
discussion concerning the loss of faculty and issues related to salary be reflected in the 
language. It was further suggested that a draft of the document be circulated to the 
committee before its submitted to meet the state requirements. It was moved, seconded and

MINUTES OF THE MEETING OF THE 
COMMITTEE ON ADMINISTRATION AND FINANCE 

Wednesday, December 4, 1991; 12:30 p.m. 

250 Stuart Street 

Trustees' Lounge 

University of Massachusetts 

Boston, Massachusetts 

Committee and Committee Staff : Chair O'Leary; Trustees Lewenberg, Loh, Newnan, 
Spence, Bogan and Flores; Mrs. Fontaine, Secretary to the Board of Trustees 

Other Trustees : Trustees Pacheco, Karam, Finnerty, Foley, and Winston 

University Administration : President Fretwell; Chancellors O'Brien, Penney, Brazil, 
Hogan, and Lazare; Vice President Lenhardt and General Counsel Searson 

Chair O'Leary convened the meeting at 12:40 p.m. The first item on the agenda was 
the FY1992 Group Practice Plan Budg et. Mr. Greene, the Executive Director of the Group 
Practice gave an overview of the budget. This budget represents a 6.7% ($68 million) 
increase over last year's revenues and expenditures ($68 million). There is a shortfall 
which will be taken out of the educational funds in departments having that shortfall. It 
was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To recommend that the Board approve the FY1992 Group Practice 

Plan Budget as contained in Doc. T91-024. 

The next item on the agenda was to grant Diplomas in University of Massachusetts 
Name to previous graduates. President Fretwell said that it has been the custom in other 
cases when institutions change sponsorship that individuals who graduated earlier request 
to receive diplomas with the new institution's name. It was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To recommend that the Board authorize the Lowell and 

Dartmouth campuses to offer diplomas in the name of the University 
of Massachusetts to previous graduates; and, further, to approve a 
printing and handling fee of $25 per diploma. (Doc. T91-128) 

The next item considered was the approval of three Leases at Worcester for 
expanding the child care services and cosmetic surgery. The Norton office space is being 
provided and provision of office space for three and a half years at minimal cost. After 
further discussion, it was moved, seconded and 

VOTED To recommend that the Board authorize the Chancellor of 

the Worcester campus, with approval of the Division of Capital 
Planning and Operations, to lease for five years 2,900 square feet of 
space at 116 Country Boulevard in Worcester for the purposes of 
expanding the Child Care Services program. 



And, 



To authorize the Chancellor of the Worcester campus, with approval 
of the Division of Capital Planning and Operations, to lease for five 
years 2,400 square feet of space at 512 West Main Street in 
Shrewsbury to accommodate the increase in outpatient services in 
Cosmetic Surgery. 



And further, 

To authorize the Chancellor to accept a gift of approximately 50,000 
square feet of leased space from the University of Massachusetts 
Medical Foundation for a three year period. (Doc. T91-128) 

The next item was a proposal from the Boston campus to explore the feasibility of 
providing limited Housing . Chancellor Penney said that surveys of UMass/Boston students 
have shown that there is a need for housing and the proposal is a way to respond to these 
needs. Two groups in particular that need housing are foreign students and inner city 
students in the academic enrichment program. The Chancellor assured the Trustees that the 
campus would remain a commuter campus. 

The plan would be to have the Building Authority help provide the campus with 
two hundred rooms in an existing Boston area dormitory and work a more formal rental 
arrangement with Harbor Point. This would be a trust fund and funded by the users. 

The Building Authority's role was discussed as well as the number of existing 
dormitory spaces not being utilized within the University. 

Chair Oakes indicated this was an important policy question and expressed concern 
that there be further examination of programs being offered at other UMass campuses and 
the potential for utilization of vacant dormitory space. 

Chair O'Leary said that the campus request is to enter into a feasibility study, at no 
cost to the campus, in response to a need on campus. He said that Chancellor Penney would 
carry back the comments and concerns of the Trustees. He added that the Building 
Authority is a convenient mechanism and thought it appropriate for the committee to get an 
update on the Authority and who participates in its activities. 

After further discussion, it was suggested that the campus first report back whether 
the plan was feasible or not and no agreement should be entered into, and second the 
feasibility study be expanded to consider programs and vacancies that currently exist on 
other campuses. Trustee Oakes also suggested the campus talk to private institutions, but 
rather than leasing dormitory space, have the institution make that dormitory available to 
the students. It was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To recommend that the Board authorize the Chancellor of the 

University of Massachusetts Boston to request the University of 
Massachusetts Building Authority to explore the feasibility of 
leasing appropriate space in the greater Boston area as a pilot 
housing program for students of the Boston campus, all as more fully 
described in Doc. T91-122. Said study shall include an inventory of 
all dormitory rooms available within the University for possible 
utilization. Further, that said Chancellor shall submit to the Board 
of Trustees for its February 5, 1992 meeting a business plan detailing 
the feasibility of such a program, together with requests for all 
appropriate trust funds, fees and budget to operate such a program. 

The next item considered was an amendment to a vote taken October 2nd for Biotech 
Park in Worcester . This amendment would allow the UMass Foundation to approve the use 
of financing through Mass Industrial Finance Authority (MIFA). The previous vote limited 
the financing to HEFA. 

It was moved, seconded and 



VOTED : To recommend that the Board amend the October 2, 1991 vote of the 

Board of Trustees with respect to funding for the purchase of Two 
Biotech Park, as follows: 

To approve the use of HEFA or MIFA financing by the University of 
Massachusetts Foundation for the purchase of Two Biotech Park and 
authorize the President to request approval of this financing from 
the Higher Education Coordinating Council if this is necessary. 

The next item was to authorize the Worcester Campus to proceed with the 
Commonwealth's Collaborative proposal to preserve non-acute services for the neediest 
citizens of Worcester. Gail Frieswick, Director of the Hospital, briefly spoke about the 
background of the situation with Worcester City, the financial problems facing the city, and 
efforts which have led to the proposed collaborative. 

Before the committee, was a request to approve the conditions listed in the memo of 
understanding, authorization to file legislation to create a University of Massachusetts 
Chapter 180 Corporation, authorization to receive property, and authorization to initiate 
capital funding up to 6.5 million dollars. 

She added that the Hospital required that several conditions be met before the 
Board acts, including agreement about the rates. 

Trustee O'Leary commended the staff for doing an excellent job in putting the issues 
forward. He also added that unless and until it is certain there is no liability and/or 
additional debt or cost to UM/Worcester, he suggested not advancing this item. After 
further discussion, the item was tabled until the Board Meeting in anticipation of an 
agreement on the rates. 

The next item was the Health Services at Boston . This item was placed on the 
agenda by Trustee Loh and Trustee O'Leary said it has received extensive discussion by the 
Committee. He added that as chair he feels strongly this is an appropriate item for the 
Chancellor to resolve. 

Trustee Loh said this has been an issue on campus. His concern specifically related 
to the process and lack of student input and involvement in the recommendations. 

The Task Force Interim Reports were then discussed. Chancellor Hogan who 
chairs the Budget Task Force spoke about two issues the group had to work on: deveoping a 
formula based funding technique and producing an FY93 budget request for the state 
appropriation. 

Chancellor then reviewed the Budget Task Force interim report. He said there are 
three ways to look at the the document. The first is as a proposal for addressing the 
fundamental issue of pursuing public and to some extent private money. This involves 
developing an integrated system starting with campus and University mission statements 
that include measurable goals. The next step is to determine what resources are present and 
put a process in place which would map out ways to get to those defined goals. Once that is 
done, it is then possible to take measurements of the steps taken to reach those goals and 
speak of them in a public way to build accountability. 

The second way to look at the document is as a way of pursuing five priority areas. 
Develop a technique for accountability that is as clear and persuasive as possible; create a 
request for state funding that is framed in terms of overall financial needs of the University; 
work to counter misconceptions about the University; and enhance Trustees involvement in 
the integrated planning/budgeting process. 



-3- 



Another valid way to look at the document is as a guide for the President and staff 
to providing the Trustees with the material and background needed in order to take four 
fundamental actions: 

1. establish goals with measurable benchmarks, 

2. determine the amount of resources that are going to be necessary to reach 
those measurable points and goals, 

3. put the Board in a position to select between alternatives once the real 
resources are known, 

4. take action on a variety of fiscal issues and policies that will arise. 

Trustee Oakes added that this effort will be extremely valuable to the University 
and one he's delighted to see. 

Chancellor Penney then gave a brief presentation of the Financial Management 
Task Force Interim Report . She said the goals of the committee were to look at a system 
to be put in place to provide both the best possible management of the University's resources 
and necessary accountability. The report stresses that Trustees set policy and that 
implementation and day to day management is at the campus level. 

She added that there are several subgroups of the Task Force including Treasurers, 
Comptrollers, etc. The final report will outline the need for common data to make it easy to 
manage financial systems, a financial records system and single payroll system, consolidated 
accounting information, and a common cost management system. This information will allow 
the Board to see the University budget as one institution. 

Vice President Lenhardt then informed the Board that the FY1993 Budg et request 
approved in October had been forwarded to the HECC. The Council recommended a 
reduction in the University's request from $285 million dollars to $266 million dollars. The 
proposed request as approved by the Trustees will soon go forward entact to the Governor 
and Budget Bureau with the Higher Education Coordinating Council's recommendations. 

Trustee Oakes added that it is important that this Board fight for the budget 
document submitted. The document presented was carefully thought out; a number of items 
could have been put in the budget and were not. It was an essential bare bones budget for the 
institution. He hoped the Board would be organized with assignments to go out and 
advocate that it is a fundamental responsibility of the state to fund its public university to 
help in the state's recovery. 

Vice President Lenhardt alerted the Committee that the State, in negotiations with 
the Federal Government, raised the Fringe Benefit Rate . This rate is also imposed on non- 
state accounts retroactive to July 1, 1991. The rate increased from 25% to 29%, plus 
workman's compensation has been removed from the rate. 

The next item was a discussion of the Mullins Arena . Vice Chancellor Page 
distributed information about the funding and capital appropriation process. The facility is 
approximately forty percent completed, with the target completion date set for August, 1992. 
He spoke about the possibilities related to revenues to be generated. Trustee O'Leary 
suggested giving the serious consideration to private management of the arena. Trustee 
O'Leary asked that the RFP for the management of the arena be submitted to this 
committee before it is issued. 

Trustee O'Leary then asked for a motion to go into executive session to discuss Audits 
and Litigation . It was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To go into executive session.

The time was 3:10 p.m. Trustee O'Leary voted for the motion as did Trustees Bogan, 
Flores, Lewenberg and Spence.

issue. She then passed out a report they had prepared listing several recommendations on 
how to meet the affirmative action needs on the Boston campus. She indicated that in spite 
of severe budget cuts, this year has had the highest minority percentage and the goal was 
to hold on to that. The percentage of minority faculty also remained very high and has 
increased 14.7 percent since 1985. 

Chair Reed stated that the Committee needed more time to study this report and 
there would be further discussion- 
Mr. Wells, Director of Affirmative Action at the Worcester campus then gave his 
report. He talked about the reallocation program the Worcester campus had formed in 1989 
due to the budget crisis. In addition to this program, Dr. Lazare had appointed a group to 
study the impact of further reductions. That group is in the process of working out a plan to 
deal with this problem particularly at the Medical School. 

He also reported that the percent of minorities at the Medical School is now five 
percent and the Director of Minority /Student Affairs last year travelled around the state 
trying to recruit minority students to improve that figure. Science courses for high school 
students are also being offered so that they may be better prepared to apply to the Medical 
School. 

Ms. Chambery, Acting Director of Affirmative Action then gave her report for the 
Amherst campus. At the request of Provost O'Brien, an Advisory Board has been studying 
the impact of the proposed program reductions and terminations and how this will impact 
Affirmative Action particularly the graduate students at the School of Education. This

J^ 



issue is still before the Faculty Senate and there is more time needed before this issue comes 
before the Board. 

Chair Reed asked that the next agenda item, Impact of Tuition and Fee Increases on 
Minority Students be reported on every three and a half to four months so that the 
Committee can monitor this situation. 

At 12:40 p.m., Chair Reed asked for a motion to go into executive session to discuss 
collective bargaining and a litigation issue. On roll call, it was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To enter executive session. 

At 1:09 p.m. the Committee reconvened in open session. The Committee then moved, 
seconded and 

VOTED : To recommend that the Board approve the 1990-91 Affirmative 

Action Plans at the Amherst and Worcester campuses. 
(Doc. T91-002) 

There being no further business to come before the Committee, the meeting adjourned 
at 1:13 p.m. t ^

MINUTES OF THE MEETING OF THE COMMITTEE ON 
BUDGET AND FINANCIAL AFFAIRS 

Tuesday, February 5, 1991 

Thirteenth Floor Conference Room 

250 Stuart Street 

Boston, Massachusetts 

Committee and Committee Staff : Chair O'Leary; Trustees Carlin, DiCara, Haynes, Reed 
and Walsh; Mrs. Fontaine, Administrative Secretary 

Committee Members Absent : Trustees Bowman and Teixeira 

Other Trustees: Trustees Canina, McQuilken and Zervas 

University Administration : President Duffey; Vice President Lenhardt and General Counsel 
Searson 

UM/Amherst : Vice Chancellor Page; Professor Schumer, Faculty Representative

Faculty Representative 

UM/Worcester : Chancellor Lazare; Deputy Chancellor Van Etten; Dr. Cooke, Faculty 
Representative 

Chair O'Leary convened the meeting at 2:15 p.m. and asked Vice President Lenhardt 
to speak about the proposed Weld-Cellucci Emergency Plan for Fiscal Recovery. Significant 
issues for the University include a 1% cut in FY'91 required of all campuses, a two week 
furlough of "state employees", expectations related to tuition waivers, additional cuts in 
education in FY'92 of $108 million, elimination of cooperative extension, (except 4H 
programs,) and a change in loan programs. 

Turning to the agenda, the Committee considered the FY'91 Financial Report, noting 
that for the first time there are available draft financial statements for the three campuses 
and President's Office. Vice President Lenhardt thanked Ms. Wanczyk and her staff for 
their efforts. He emphasized that funds are not transferable between trust funds. 

The Committee discussed at length the financial picture of the University and 
stressed that with a new administration we now have the opportunity to encourage change, 
which could allow flexibility. Chair O'Leary urged campuses to present the Committee 
with suggestions on how the University could transfer among accounts. 

The Committee then considered the FY1991 Operating Budg et which Vice President 
Lenhardt spoke to. He indicated that the budgets are as of December 31, 1990 and do not 
reflect cuts as proposed by the Weld Administration. He emphasized that the FY1991 
budget reflects the University absorbing $45 million in fringe benefit costs and that 
instruction, research and student service expenses are continuing to decrease. He also stated 
that tuition increases and curriculum support fees have replaced only 25% of the loss of 
State appropriations. 

It was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To recommend that the Board approve the FY1991 Operating 

Budget as contained in Doc. T91-003. 



Trustee DiCara commented that the budget is approved as a duty and this does not 
reflect enjoyment of the numbers presented therein. 

Next on the agenda was the Treasurer's 1991 Investment Report, which was for 
discussion only. Vice President Lenhardt indicated investment results produced 35% of the 
growth in revenues in our investments. He commended the Treasurer's Office staff for their 
efforts. The Committee asked that the Foundation comment on the Treasurer's report and 
role of the Foundation. 

The next item on the agenda was the Cash Management Policy which piggybacks on 
the investment report. 

Highlights of the policy include a change in the University's practice of utilizing 
banks as the primary repository of cash investments; movement to U.S. Treasury and Federal 
Agenda investment vehicles; utilization of money market mutual funds invested in U.S. 
Treasuries and government agencies; use of variable interest rates when necessary; 
diversification of bank relationships; and accelerated use of longer term instruments. 

The Committee discussed this item in detail and expressed concern that the current 
investment restrictions criteria limits investments to only tow Massachusetts banks. The 
Committee would like to keep money as close to home as possible within a prudent policy, 
and would like further discussion of this item in April. 

Non-State Fund Expenditure Report was the next item on the agenda and was for 
information only. 

Deputy Chancellor Van Etten addressed the next item, Determination of Need for 
the University Hospital. The Medical Center Hospital has substantially reduced it's 
original request filed in 1989. The new Determination of Need involves a new psychiatric 
wing with 131 beds, a new pediatric pavilion with 60 acute beds. The DON also involves 
building a new ambulatory building adjacent to the Ambulatory Annex, hopefully to be 
constructed this summer. The total construction cost is approximately $90 million dollars, 
and with financing, construction and other project costs the total is $120 million. Of that 
total cost, the state is scheduled to pay $18 million, which is half of the cost of the 
psychiatric wing. The Medical Center has proposed paying $20 million and the remainder 
would be financed with bonds through the HEFA program. 

Deputy Chancellor Van Etten then gave the background of the next item, Tri-River 
Lease Guaranty . The Tri-River Family Health Center is an outreach program of the 
Medical Center, which provides primary medical care to the southern Blackstone Valley. 

The Center is currently housed in a 6,000 square foot building and because of demand 
for services would like to add 12,000 square feet to the current facility. It was proposed that 
the Chancellor negotiate a guarantee of financing to be obtained by the Tri-River 
Development Corporation for construction of additional space at Tri-River Health Center. 
Although the Committee looked favorably on the request it asked that action be deferred 
until the April meeting. The Committee asked for additional information concerning the 
impact of the expansion on community hospitals in the area, as well as financial and 
programmatic analysis. 

The next item was a request for a change to the statement of trust for the Allied 
Health Trust Fund at the Medical Center. The new language would allow for the collection 
of fees for campus-based non-degree certificate programs as well as non-campus-based 
programs.. It was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To recommend that the Board amend the Allied Health Trust 

Fund vote as follows: 



C 



By striking out the following: 

To establish the University of Massachusetts /Worcester 
Allied Health Trust Fund, which shall have as its 
purpose the providing of services in non-physician health 
science programs in collaboration with other institutions 
of higher learning within the Commonwealth as outlined 
in Doc. T81-049. 

The costs of the operation and maintenance of this self- 
supporting program shall be recovered from fees charged 
to users of the program and any other appropriate non-state 
funding sources; 

and inserting in place thereof the following: 

To establish the University of Massachusetts /Worcester 
Allied Health Trust Fund, which shall have as its 
purpose the providing of services in non-physician health 
science programs in collabo ration with other institutions of 
higher learning within the Commonwealth and the offering 
of non-degree certificate programs in the Allied Health 
professions. 

The costs of the operations and maintenance of this self- 
supporting program shall be recovered from fees charged 
to collaborative institutions and /or individuals in campus- 
based Allied Health certificate programs. (Doc. T81-049A) 

The next item was a request for A pproval of an Overscale Salary for Virginia 
Lichlytor, the Administrator for Decision Support Services at the Hospital. It was moved, 
seconded and 

VOTED : To recommend that the Board approve an overscale salary 

of $65,000 for Virginia Lichlyter as Administrator for 
Decision Support Services at the University of Massachusetts 
at Worcester. (Doc. T9 1-01 6) 

Chair O'Leary then asked for a motion to go into Executive Session to discuss Audits. 
At 3:40 p.m. it was moved, seconded and 



VO TED: 



To enter Executive Session. 



Chair O'Leary voted for the motion as did Trustees Carlin, DiCara, Haynes, Oakes, 
Reed and Walsh.

appropriations had been cut again since the materials were prepared. The campus 
representatives then gave brief overviews of the financial picture for the campuses since the 
operating budget was prepared. 

The next item for consideration was the FY92 Student-Fee Based Budg ets. At 
Amherst, the mandatory fee increases for FY92 total approximately 4% for undergraduates 
and 4.3% for graduate students. No increase in the Curriculum Support Fee is requested at 
this time, but it will be reviewed once FY92 tuition rates have been set. 

The Athletic Fee at the Amherst campus was discussed. Noting that there was an 
Athletic Committee meeting following this meeting, it was suggested that action on the 
Athletic fee be deferred until that meeting. 

The Boston campus proposed no increases in the current mandatory fees but proposed 
that the curriculum support fee be annualized at $600 per semester. 

The Worcester campus also requested an increase in the Curriculum Support Fee of 
$450 ($750 per year), including students entering in the fall of 1991. For students entering in 
the fall of 1992, and beyond, the fee would be $1,000. An amendment was made to maintain 
the fee at the $750 level for all students. The amendment was defeated on vote 3:2:1. The 
FY92 Student Fee Based Budgets were moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To recommend that the Board approve the FY92 Student 

Fee-Based Budgets and other fees contained in Doc. T91-024. 

And, 

Trustee Haynes is recorded as opposed. 



The Committee then considered Revisions to the Statements of Trust for the 
Curriculum Support Fee a t Worcester and I nstructional Trust Fund at Amherst. It was agreed 
to apply the provisions of the Instructional Trust Fund to the Boston campus. It was moved, 
seconded and 

VOTED : To recommend that the Board approve a revised Statement 

of Trust and Purpose for the Curriculum Support Fee at the 
University of Massachusetts at Worcester as contained in 
Doc. T91-024 and to amend said program statement by 
adding in line 8 after the words faculty salaries "as they 
relate to education". 

And further, 

VOTED : To recommend that the Board approve a revised Statement 

of Trust for the Instructional Trust Fund at the University 
of Massachusetts at Amherst and Boston by deleting "...; 
provided, however, that no other personnel costs nor capital 
equipment shall be supported by said Trust Fund. (Doc. T77-103A) 

Vice President Lenhardt gave a preliminary overview of what might occur in the 
FY19-92 State budget and the implications for higher education. 

The Committee then considered the University Cash Management Policy which had 
been revised as a result of concerns raised at the February meeting. It was moved, seconded 
and 

VOTED : To recommend that the Board approve the University Cash 

Management Policy as contained in Doc. T91-004A. 

The Committee then discussed an addition of $510,000 to the existing Line of Credit 
for the Purchase of the Hadley Farm . The Committee requested additional information 
prior to the Board meeting concerning the total cost of the purchase and renovations. 

At the February meeting, the Committee delayed action on a request to authorize 
the Chancellor of the Worcester campus to negotiate a guarantee of financing from the 
Hospital Trust Fund for construction of an addition to the Tri-River Health Center . It was 
moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To recommend that the Board authorize the Chancellor of 

the Worcester campus to negotiate a guarantee of financing 
to be obtained by the Tri-River Development Corporation 
for construction of approximately 16,800 gross square feet 
of additional space at the Tri-River Health Center and, 
further, to authorize the Chancellor, subject to approval 
by the Division of Capital Planning and Operations to lease 
said space on behalf of the University of Massachusetts at 
Worcester for expansion of the Tri-River Health Center. 
(Doc. T81-106, Addendum 1) 

Discussion of the Capital Plans for the University Hospital was deferred until the 
June meeting because of the lateness of the hour.

Committee Members Absent : Trustees Bowman, Foley, Mahoney and Zervas 

University Administration : President Duffey; Vice President Lenhardt 

UM/Boston : Chancellor Penney 

UM/Worcester : Chancellor Lazare 

Trustee Baker, Chair, called the meeting to order at 10:10 a.m. There was a general 
discussion on Long Range Plans for Development at the three campuses. The Committee 
needed to look at where they were going in terms of public relations on each campus. There 
was discussion about the work GR/PR provided over the past year and if they or another 
group were needed in the future. Chancellors Penney and Lazare expressed their desire to 
bring back Bruce Flessner perhaps twice a year for one-on-one sessions and then meeting with 
the Committee. 

Chancellor Penney spoke with enthusiasm of the Corporate Campaign group she has 
assembled including Robert H. Quinn, Stephen Sweeney, Joseph Kennedy and Agnes 
Cullinane. This is a corporate fundraising group very interested in helping the University. 

Trustee Haynes stressed the need for each campus to establish a long-range 
development plan and act on it. 

The University of Massachusetts Foundation was then discussed. The current set-up 
has all three campuses under the umbrella of one foundation. There was talk of the Medical 
Center establishing its own Foundation. Chancellor Lazare spoke about a group of leading 
businessmen in Worcester forming their own Foundation to help the community. They also 
want harmony within the city and hospital and to keep health care costs down. This group 
wants very much to help the Medical Center as we are now the largest employer in central 
Massachusetts. 

A separate foundation for UM/Boston was also discussed. The new corporate 
Campaign group formed at the UM/Boston may want to manage the money they've raised 
within their own foundation with its own Board. 

There was discussion about the current Foundation set-up changing to better serve 
each campus. It was suggested that more members may need to be added to the Board of 
Directors from the Boston and Worcester area. It was the consensus of the Committee that 
this issue be further discussed after each campus examines its own needs for the future. 

Allocations from Trustee Reserve for Special Development projects was the next topic 
of discussion. There was a general discussion on how the money is spent and what may be 
needed for future developmental efforts.

In summary, the Committee decided that they would bring back Bruce Flessner to 
meet with staff from each of the three campuses, then with the Board, that the Worcester 
campus would look into developing its own Foundation and Boston would use the current 
structure for the time being and that the Administration would bring back a recommendation 
on how Trust Fund Interest money should be used in general and whether or not the current 
policy be changed. 

It was also decided that each campus do a spot check on how they are doing in 
hiring and in terms of goals so they can revise plans or maybe take some of the money they 
didn't use in salaries and come back with a proposal on how that money is going to be spent.

Representative 

Chair Oakes convened the meeting at 4:00 p.m. and announced that in addition to 
the items before the Committee that Legal Services, UM/Amherst was being added to the 
agenda. 

The first item on the agenda was Hospital Management Board Minutes . It was 
moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To recommend that the Board approve the minutes 

of the October 25 and November 28, 1990 Hospital 
Management Board meetings including the June, 1990 
audited financial statements and the September and 
October, 1990 unaudited financial statements and the 
appointments and reappointments to the Medical 
Center. (Doc. T91-011) 

Next considered was a recommendation to revise the Board of Trustees' By-Laws to 
include the Vice Chair of the Board as a member of the Executive Committee. It was 
moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To recommend that the Board approve a revision to 

the Board of Trustees By-Laws (Doc. T81-028C, as 
amended) by replacing Article III, Section 5, with the 
following: 

"The Executive Committee shall be composed of the Chair 
of the Board of Trustees, the Vice Chair of the Board of 
Trustees, . . ." 

President Duffey then asked Vice Chancellor Madson to speak about the process 
which began last summer. 



Trustee McQuilken then emphasized that the process has been cooperative between 
administrators and students and that the resolution which will be put before the Committee 
is the result of that process. 

Trustee DiCara also spoke to the item giving the background since 1987 when the 
Board rescinded all authorization for litigation. He indicated that the proposed 
recommendation would delegate to the Legal Services Center for two years limited litigation 
authority, specifically in the areas of landlord/tenant and Consumer Protection matters. 
Further, there is established an Advisory Board the intent of which is to be representative 
of outside lawyers as well as consumers to advise the Director of Student Activities on 
matters relating to the Legal Services Center. 

General Counsel Searson then spoke to his sense of unease concerning this delegation 
of limited authority to bring suits on behalf of the University. The Committee then had a 
lengthy discussion about the recommendation. The Trustees present voiced their views about 
this issue both pro and con. The dispute resolution process was highly commended, but a 
number of concerns were expressed including the public relations perspective of having 
University employees initiating litigation. 

Trustee Zervas pointed out that prior to this meeting the Academic and Student 
Affairs Committee had discussed this issue and voted to express its appreciation for the 
process by which this document was created. 

The Committee listened to a number of students from the Amherst campus who spoke 
in favor of the proposal which they hoped would foster a whole new atmosphere on campus. 

As a compromise, it was suggested that the Committee consider an amendment to the 
motion which would authorize the Legal Services Center to retain outside Legal counsel to 
represent individual students. 

The students raised concerns about the funding and about the ability to fund 
affordable outside counsel. Chair Oakes in response volunteered to help find attorneys in 
western Massachusetts to donate their services to the students. 

The motion as originally presented was moved, seconded. It was then amended to 
strike in the first sentence "Attorneys in" and add after "to" in the second line, "retain 
outside legal counsel" to . . . 

After discussing the amendment among themselves, the students indicated that they 
did not support the motion as amended because funding was not available and their feeling 
was that the program would not work. 

It was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To recommend that the Board authorize the Legal Services 

Center at the University of Massachusetts at Amherst to 
represent individual students in litigation and agency 
proceedings regarding solely landlord /tenant and 
consumer protection matters, provided, however, that this 
authorization shall not extend to litigation or agency 
proceedings against or involving the Commonwealth, its 
agencies or subdivisions, including municipalities and towns, 
or any officials, agents, servants or employees thereof, either 
individually or in their official capacity, insofar as the matter 
relates to their duties or employment. This authorization 
shall extend until June 30, 1993, and may be revoked by the 
Chancellor or his/her designee. After thorough review, the 
campus may request that the Trustees extend this limited 



-2- 



litigation authority. 

Further, to authorize the Amherst campus Director of 
Student Activities in his/her discretion to establish an 
advisory committee (currently known as the Legal Services 
Board) to advise the Director on matters relating to the 
Legal Services Center, as the Director shall determine. 

In all other respects, the Board or Trustees reaffirms its voice 
of August 31, 1987 regarding the Legal Services Center. 

Trustees Baker, DiCara and Walsh are recorded as opposed. 

The Committee then considered Cogeneration Plant at UM/ Amherst. President 
Duffey suggested that since the campus could not guarantee the jobs of the current employees 
at the power plant, that the campus include in the RFP's to which potential contractors 
would be responding a question asking them to detail what provisions they would make for 
opportunities for current employees. 

Trustee Haynes' concerns regarding this were two-fold: the assumption that 
contracting out saves the University money and approving a contract based on the low 
bidder's ability to depress wages and benefits. He stated he would like to see language that 
if the job descriptions are the same and if the people are qualified to perform the duties on 
the new facility that they be given priority for employment opportunities. 

The Committee suggested that Trustees Haynes, Vice Chancellor Page and General 
Counsel Searson work out the appropriate language for the Board to consider at the Board 
meeting. 

The Committee then considered the Alcoholic Beverage Policy at the Boston campus. 
It was moved, seconded and 



VOTED : 



To recommend that the Board amend Doc. T91-005, the proposed 
Alcoholic Beverages Policy for the Boston campus, by: 

(1) Amending the title to read "Alcoholic Beverages Policy 
University of Massachusetts at Boston"; 

(2) Deleting the Preface; 

(3) Deleting from Section 4(a) the parenthetical reference 
"(Trustee Document, T75-015A)"; 

(4) striking from Section 5(a) the word "matter" and 
inserting in lieu thereof the word "policy"; 

(5) Striking the period after Section 6(e) and substituting 
therefor a semicolon; and 

(6) Adding after the words "police officers" in Section 7 the 
following: - ", if any,"; 

(7) Renumbering the amended document as Trustee Document 
T91-005A.
